Thanks Nige for the great review.

Looks like I got a second Office for my second build.

I saw this when Nige acquired it at the Bolton show and just wish I had the 19 on me to get one. It truly is amazing piece of resin.

I Understand where you're coming from. if your check out my build log you should see better photos of how the parts should look.

You'll also find some errors and omissions in this thread.

Next time I see Bob from MDC (probably in the new year now), I'll mention the poor Instructions to him and see if I can blag a set to make some new instruction for them (you never know it may work)

Hope this helps
